Location, Location, Location

The interior of our home is surpassed only by its setting. Sunset Poipu is located on Kauai’s South Shore—the sunny side of the island. Specifically, our island home is located in Poipu, in what many consider the most desirable vacation spot in all of Kauai.

Positioned literally 35 feet from the ocean, enjoy unbeatable views without ever leaving the lanai (or the dining nook, or the living room, or the kitchen, or the master bedroom, for that matter). Notably, the multi-million dollar homes planned for the neighboring Kukuiula development have nowhere near the views that are yours here. Experience oceanfront living at its best at Sunset Poipu.

About The Owner

We (the Fells) reside in Denver, Colorado but wish we lived at Kuhio Shores #311! Having rented many different accommodations during our own stays on Kauai over the years, we know some of the little touches we experienced (or wish we had) that make an island visit that much more blissful, and we've tried to incorporate them here.

Why The Owner chose Kauai

Kauai has always been our favorite island. It's lush, natural beauty, still largely unspoiled, along with it's pace of life, drew us back year after year. Now that our dream of owning on the Garden Isle has finally been realized, we'd like nothing better than to share our island home with you. Although we have stayed all over the island and appreciate its varied splendors, we've found Poipu to offer more sunnier days in which to enjoy all that this special place has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Snorkel Lawai Beach and the bay side of the property--recognized as some of the finest locations on the island for snorkeling. Snuba (hybrid of snorkeling & scuba) off Lawai Beach or Old Koloa Landing, another inlet about ¼ of a mile away, a dive site that scuba divers also frequent. Surf some of the best surf spots on the South Shore located just off the coast behind the building. Turtle-spot every morning & evening, from the lanai or the shore, and share in their serenity as they ride the waves. Follow the yearly whale migration during the winter months. Sunset Poipu is also located in convenient proximity to dining and shopping. Literally next door to the property is the Beach House Restaurant, known not only for its cuisine but its sunset views. Kukuiula Marketplace, an attractive new development less than a mile away, has a Merriman’s, Downstairs Café, Bubba’s Burgers, Lappert’s, and a gourmet market, along with several boutiques. In Old Koloa Town itself, there are two additional markets-- Sueoka’s and Big Save--as well as additional restaurants and an Island Soap & Candleworks store. Traveling southwest on Poipu Road, about a mile after the roundabout is the Poipu Shopping Center, which has Roy’s Poipu Bar & Grill, Keoki’s, Na Hoku Jewelers, Puka Dogs, Whaler’s General Store and, of course, Starbucks. Make the left turn on Kiahuna Plantation Drive, pass the Poipu Shopping Center and go all the way back to the Kiahuna Golf Course to find Joe’s on the Green, a pleasant, casual spot for brunch. Speaking of golf courses on the South Shore, in addition to the Kiahuna Golf Course, less than two miles down from the Poipu Shopping Center, is the famous Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course, the previous home of the PGA Grand Slam Tournament. As you can see, Sunset Poipu offers the ideal blend of natural beauty and convenience. Come experience paradise Kauai-style and find yourself returning year after year as we have!

Great view

  • 5 of 5

The reviews before this one basically said it all. Lovely accommodations. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for the home and the beach! The views are wonderful. In the mornings and evenings you can see lots of turtles, In the early evening you can watch surfers all from the lanai. Restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Great place to stay. Thank you.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Having read all posted reviews I will not repeat everything already stated but instead confirm everything!!! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The plentiful dining experiences nearby were excellent. Groceries we bought were not needed as we had great variety of choices for all our meals close by. Golfing at Kukui'ula was the best experience ever - Pebble Beach has nothing on this golf course. Spot on location was close to everything even San Rafaels for church on Sunday.

Beautiful Oceanfront Condo - Turtles, Sunsets, Rainbows

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for two couples and it had a great layout for that allowing for more privacy as there is a hallway between the bedrooms. The beds were extremely comfortable and the condo had everything we needed for our stay, including shampoos, conditioners, body wash in each bathroom, so no need to fly your own. Jane also provides beach gear including multiple coolers, beach chairs and towels. There are coin operated laundry facilities on each floor.

Having said all that, the best part of our stay was an amazing view you got each and every time you entered the condo. We have stayed at Kuhio Shores in 2014 and had the bay view, facing east. Either way, you can't go wrong renting in this building. However, being directly oceanfront was certainly more favorable for turtle watching and also surfers in the afternoons. The building is in the phenomenal location: you can snorkel on either side of it (tour vans actually bring snorkelers there, so that tells you it's pretty good), watch the sunset on one side and the sunrise on the other side of the building. Having the Beach House Restaurant right next door is a bonus. But you don't have to have an expensive dinner to watch an amazing sunset, you can just sit on the lava rock wall by Lawaii beach and watch the sun go down. FYI, units ending with 1 to 8 are facing bay side (I believe 9s are the corner units) and units ending 10 to 18 (?) are oceanfront with even more amazing view. Would definitely go back.

The Condo

  • 5 of 5

The Condo did not just meet our expectations, it totally blew them out of the water. It's simply gorgeous, the perfect size for two couples or a family of 4 or 5, and has everything one could need for a fun-filled vacation. My husband and I stayed with my sister and brother in law for 4 nights and loved every second. The other condo owners are very kind people who will jump at the opportunity to give tourism advice and share a fun story or two. From the balcony, we sat with our coffee in the mornings to watch the sunrise and switched to sipping margaritas in the evening to watch the colorful sunsets. We could see sea turtles and in the early morning hours, even dolphins cruising the coast. The condo is right next door to one of the best restaurants we've ever eaten at, The Beach House, and only minutes away from Poipu beach. We found that this area offered some fun tourist attractions without being inundated with them. I would recommend this condo at Kuhio shores to anyone. 10 out of 10!!!

This is certainly one of the best rentals we have rented with VRBO, and we have rented in the US and Europe with the site. Right-on-the-water views and tastefully decorated, it is fully equipped with everything you need for the beach or in the kitchen. Great snorkeling is right out the door and many beaches or sights are just a short drive away, including two of the National Botanical Gardens. A walk or very short drive away there is an up-scale shopping center with shops, restaurants and groceries. A few miles further in Old Koloa Town there are more shops, restaurants and markets. The building is well maintained and the staff is helpful with any questions. The owner is quick to respond and helpful with any questions that you might have prior to arrival.This is truly a great condo on the south shore of Kauai.

Great two week stay for two couples!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was clean, beds and linens good, wonderful kitchen and superb location. You could not be closer to the water unless you are on a boat! Great layout to comfortably share the space for two couples. Owners are very responsive and good to work with.
